Privé MEDSPA Weight Problems

The world faces an obesity epidemic. Obesity is a chronic disease and it is estimated that at least 1.1 billion adults are overweight and that 312 million are obese.

According to James et al, the prevalence of obesity has doubled or even risen threefold in less than two decades, while in children this is rising at an even faster rate.

How does being overweight or obese affect our health? Obesity is a major risk factor for coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes and some forms of cancer. Obese people are also at high risk for depression, job discrimination and other social problems. After tobacco use, obesity is the second-leading cause of preventable deaths. About 3 in 5 South Africans are overweight or obese, and those numbers are rising. The number of children and teens who are overweight or obese is also expected to increase.

Overweight is classified as having a Body Mass Index (BMI) outside of the healthy range.

The BMI is currently the international standard for assessing weight.

BMI = Weight (kgs) ÷ Height (m) squared

BMI Categories:

Normal weight = 18.5-24.9
Overweight = 25-29.9 Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater
A BMI of less than 18.5 is considered underweight.
A BMI of 18.5 to 24.9 is considered healthy.
A BMI of 25 to 29.9 is considered overweight.
A BMI of 30 or more is considered obese.

At Clínica Privé we have recognized that before one even starts on any body-shaping program it is important that one is close to their ideal weight or BMI (Body Mass Index) as possible. A visit to one of the nutrtionists at Clínica Privé will determine whether you are carrying excess weight.Nutrition Counceling at Privé MEDSPA

In the human body we can distinguish three kinds of fat:

  1. Structural fat which cushions our organs and is vital for normal organ functioning and protection.
  2. Normal fat which acts as a reserve of fuel upon which the body can freely draw on.
  3. The third kind of fat is entirely abnormal. It is the accumulation of such fat from which the overweight patient suffers. Unfortunately this kind of fat is locked away and is not available to the body in a nutritional emergency.

An eating plan as well as some tips, interesting menus and pointers will be given, and you will be advised on how to handle difficult situations or manage times when you may be struggling.

Being motivated is easy when you feel great and full of energy, and even easier when you start receiving compliments from your friends and you fit into clothing you never thought you'd wear again. There is no rebound or regain of weight and our patients manage to maintain their weight loss long term by following a maintenance program.

Clínica Privé Tip:

Once a certain weight loss is achieved, Clínica Privé is excited to offer the next step in multi-modality therapy in treating exercise and diet resistant fat and cellulite. Any treatment modality on its own can make a big difference, but in our eyes it's not sufficient. Resistant fat and cellulite have different forms and grades and thus success needs a combination of treatments that include lymphatic drainage, reduction of fat cells, stretching of connective tissue and collagen stimulation.

Reshape with In office Treatments:

At Clínica Privé resistant fat is treated with the following modalities once you are in shape and within 6 kilograms of your ideal weight. The following body shaping treatments are well suited to treat the fat deposits which make the body disproportionate.

  1. Ultrashape. High frequency ultra sound therapy that causes cavitation (“blasts and destroys the fat cells by means of ultrasound”)
  2. VelaShape™, a 4 in 1 treatment that reduces circumference and fat dramatically. Velashape™ has FDA approval for circumferential reduction and patients liken it to a warm massage.
  3. Carboxytherapy, the miracle gas, has been touted as the biggest beauty breakthrough since Botox, and forms an important component of any body-shaping program. Therapy involves injecting tiny amounts of CO2 beneath the skin to break down fatty deposits, improve the appearance of cellulite, increase the micro-circulation to the area and stimulate collagen production.
  4. Lipomassage™ is a new targeted Endermologie® which treats resistant fat and increases blood circulation and lymph drainage in resistant areas, with fewer treatments.
  5. Transdermal Mesotherapy delivers active Mesotherapy ingredients without the use of needles.
